With two fantastic wins in their last two games, the Montreal Canadiens are making believers out of not only their fans, but the rest of the league. They need to focus their newly found cohesion against a Hurricanes team that somehow alwyas finds a way to succeed against us – dating back to a very bitter playoff loss during the 2005-2006 season that witnessed the team go on to win the Stanley Cup.
Cam Ward has been good this season, although his last outing was a rough one as he was pulled in the second period of an 8-1 loss to the Flyers after he gave up 4 goals on 13 shots. The Canadiens would do well to try to emulate their Philly rivals – as Montreal is amongst a group of 4 teams in the Eastern conference who have yet to score 40 goals as a team (New Jersey, Toronto, and NY Islanders). That is not the kind of company you want to keep.
Go Offense! Go Habs Go!!!
